Hovering Over the Waters - SOLD

Hovering Over the Waters - SOLD

The ocean here is a symbol of the “Breath (רוח) of God”. Oceans are diverse but of the same essence. They are whispers of both variation and consistency. The ocean is shallow and approachable; deep and unimaginably vast. It is peaceful yet wild and uncontrollable, while holding the ingredients of life.As I painted this piece I pondered God’s breath hovering over the waters as in the Creation narrative; The unfolding of beauty yet to be known, waiting to be breathed into life. I held no expectation, but felt an invitation to show up and paint an idea that had been brewing inside of me. I wanted to paint the ocean as a feeling or sort of unarticulated longing, which turned into one I would literally hover over as she worked.This painting became a physical prayer that beauty and restoration and life would be breathed again into our current chaos and darkness.
